Nope - it won't be...

Trouble is, APR isn't limited to pretending to be unix (we would have
just used mingw if that was the case).

The API you are looking for is ACL support.  And it's not just win32,
but HP has needed this for the longest time, and now linux has caught up.

You'll probably need to look further down the road, likely 1.4 or 2.0.
It's non-trivial so I'm taking bets that we are ready to release 1.3
(lots of good features there already) before we are ready with a truly
portable ACL implementation.

And yes - when/if it arrives, it will be as portable as the rest of APR.
